    Christopher Nolan has made a point, when writing the Batman films, to attempt to encapsulate the current mood in America. The Dark Knight embodies the post-9/11 conversation of privacy versus security, and contains a villain who certainly can be defined as a terrorist in an era in which terrorism is the focal point of foreign policy. The Dark Knight Rises also attempts to capture the current mood of the country, and draws parallels with the financial crisis, Wall Street, and…

    Not perfect, but still an incredible experience. I love so many of the references to the earlier movies, and Bruce's journey. You can nitpick if you want, but this trilogy capper earns it's place amongst the great superhero tales.

    Frankly, the Nolan Batman trilogy could easily just end on The Dark Knight. Can we agree on that? Are we all happy with that? I mean, Batman is leave fuck-all to do after the completion of his arc in Batman Begins, and The Dark Knight followed the Joker namely, Batman's ideological counterpart (self-actualized fascism v. self-actualized anarchism) - so where do we go from here?

    Well, apparently the answer was "backwards" as The Dark Knight Rises opts to lift the…

    Too long, awkward execution, and generally rather boring. Anne Hathaway saves the film as Catwoman--every scene she is in, she steals with aplomb.

    Our bat-friend has never really captivated me. I've seen both "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight". I can barely remember anything from the first movie. I guess I wasn't really impressed by that one. "The Dark Knight" on the other hand did, and that because of the charismatic figure "The Joker". A figure without rancor and with a phenomenal crazy look.

    That's something I really missed a little bit here. Bane was the personification of intense hatred and had a…

    Was it the perfect ending to the Nolan trilogy? No, because the perfect ending would've involved the Joker, that's almost for certain. But at least it was an ending. In today's world of perpetual reboots and sequels, it's nice to get closure.

    The visuals alone make it worth watching over again and the score is one of the best that I can think of. The second best film of the series, only because The Dark Knight is practically flawless.

    Part Four of Preparing (As Much as Humanly Possible) For Interstellar

    Despite some narrative inconsistencies and unneeded characters, The Dark Knight Rises is one of Christopher Nolan's most ambitious works, and probably his most operatic so far. The entire film feels like a half-healed wound, sending jolts of pain and suffering into the character's synapses after every accidental scratch.

    Supported by magnificent performances (particularly by Michael Caine), a strong cast, vibrant and darkened cinematography and Hans Zimmer's pounding and chill-inducing…

    Here's how I like to watch my Batman movies: once, and one time only, and as long after everyone else has moved on as possible. I like to ask amateur questions like, hey, was that the guy in the other movie? Oh, did that guy die? And don't people sometimes think it's weird how Batman and Bruce Wayne disappear and reappear at pretty much the same time? I like to goad Bruce Wayne and tell him he needs to suck…

    Certainly one of the most celebrated trilogies of recent years, The Dark Knight films are not only some of the best superhero films, they are some of the best films. Chris Nolan has brought incredible vision, production and outstanding performances to these movies about Gotham's most famous son.
